Backup & Disaster Recovery Solutions

A good backup and disaster recovery plan is an essential core component of any network design. With all the safety precautions we build-in - RAID systems and high availability clustering systems for instance, we always need a plan B just in case! There any many forms of backup, we often associate backups with respect to company data, but let’s not forget this can also include hardware devices; what happens if your main switch goes down - do you have a backup?

Traditional data backup involved using tape drives to make a copy of your most precious company files. While tape backup is tried, tested, and still widely used, albeit comparatively slower, alternatives such as faster disk based backups and online offsite backups are proving very popular as the need less user management or intervention.

Within the industry we say that “the only thing worse than not having a backup plan, is not testing that your backups actually work”. Backups need to be periodically tested to verify they work and contain the expected data. Doing this also tests your disaster recovery plan - can you restore the right data to the right place with an allotted time slot?

Nexgenn has partnered with some of the top leading vendors in Backup and Disaster Recovery including Symantec and Trend Micro. We have the expertise in-house to develop and test the right backup and disaster recovery plan for your environment. Each plan is tailored to your exact needs. We will look at how you use data, what is important to you, how quickly we are able to get you back up and running, and how much hands-on input you are prepared to do.

Our disaster recovery plans also take into account your hardware requirements and we’ll make provisions that can be implemented to mitigate the impact of equipment loss.
